Puri: Mobile phones are banned inside Lord Jagannath Temple. However, on multiple occasions, videos showing the premises of the holy shrine have been shot on mobile camera and circulated on the internet.
This time it was two Tik Tok videos featuring Jagannath Temple premises which went viral on social media. The videos show the inside view of the temple premises and devotees having ‘Mahaprasad’ at Anand Bazaar.
The videos were later posted on the instagram account of a girl. It is being verified whether the same girl shot the videos or someone else committed the act and posted in on Instagram.
Convener of a Youth Association of Puri Anil Kumar Sahoo who is also a lawyer has filed a police complaint in this connection. Singhadwar police have seized the videos and investigating further.
